Carleton Student Demo: 100th Anniversary of Parliament Hill Fire

100th Anniversary of Parliament Hill Fire

The Canadian Museum of Nature is hosting a talk to commemorate the centennial of the fire that destroyed Parliament Hill's Centre Block. The cause of the fire remains a mystery. On Feb. 3, 1916, Parliament went up in flames. A day later, the House of Commons was moved to the Victoria Memorial Museum, now the Museum of Nature, and remained there until 1920. Dr. David Tough of Trent University will speak about the political significance of the fire, which occurred during the First World War.
